HCG Foundation presents "Ratri After Navratri" 2017 to save lives of Pediatric Cancer Patients
Childhood cancers or Pediatric cancers were not common until significant cases started being detected, lately. The rising numbers have made cancer the 9th common cause of death in children aged between 1-18 years. Statistics show that pediatric cancers form an alarming 5.5% of the total cases in India. The survival rate among children is much higher than adults at 70%. They are more receptive to treatment, more tolerant of chemotherapy and have a longer life expectancy.
To approach this mounting health challenge, HCG - The Specialist in Cancer Care recently launched a unique and comprehensive Pediatric Oncology Unit by Rajmata Shrimant Shubhangini Raje Gaekwad on 21st August, 17 at HCG Cancer Centre, Vadodara.
Accessibility and affordability are crucial practical aspects of cancer treatment. To create awareness about childhood cancers and to raise funds for treating needy children with cancer, HCG Foundation is organizing a Fundraiser Navaratri Night on 1st October 2017 at The Polo Club, Vadodara with renowned folk singer Shri Atul Purohit. The funds thus raised will be utilized to treat economically marginalized pediatric cancer patients. You too can contribute to this movement of spreading smiles by being a part of “Ratri After Navratri” - 2017
Shri Atul Purohit - Singer said “I am privileged to be a part of this one day Navratri organized by the HCG foundation. I support this noble cause wholeheartedly. My best wishes to HCG in their endeavor to ensure that no child with cancer is turned away because of financial challenges. I wish more and more people will provide financial support, so that more young lives can be saved from cancers.”
